Spinach Banana Smoothie

I'm Popeye the sailor man!!!

I got several interesting answers for the guessing game yesterday!

My smoothie consisted of
Spinach - 1 cup
Banana - 1
Cold Milk - 3/4 cup
Oats - 1/2 cup

Wash the spinach thoroughly. Chop the bananas roughly. Add all the ingredients to the blender/juicer and pulse till you get a smooth smoothie!

Just delicious!
The banana masks the raw taste of spinach. If the banana is not ripe enough you could add a spoon of honey/ agave nectar for more sweetness. I did not add it though.

This smoothie contains the goodness of the superfoods - spinach, oats and banana and has a good serving of fruits n veggies. What more could one ask for! There was no compromise in the taste aspect as well.

Do try this and get hooked on to its taste!

Also do check out my other smoothies!

  4. Good one Divya! I was thinking it could be Spinach - but a lot of your comments were suggesting avocado..so I thought maybe it could be avocado. I'm not a fan of banana - If not, I would have gulped this down! Shud find a good sub for banana and have it as my breakfast!

  28. Ah, banana and spinach!! That's one of my favorite smoothie combos, but mine turns out darker since I do not use milk (but coconut water)! Oats are a neat addition. I'll give it a whirl. :)
